Division of Emergency Management

La Crosse County Emergency Management (LCEM) engages the whole community in assessing needs and developing strategies to achieve stronger preparedness, prevention, response, and mitigation capabilities within the La Crosse County Area.

Our office supports first responders, including fire, law enforcement, and emergency medical services in emergencies and disasters. We are also responsible for facilitating the coordination of resources from Local and State partners, community-based organizations, and faith-based organizations to provide community members with relief and supplies in an emergency or disaster.
